BEIJING: The number of Indian students in China has steadily risen to over 13,500 as India ranked among the top 10 nations sending the highest number of students to Chinese varsities, amid talks for mutual recognition of degrees.
The number of Indian students coming to China have increased, and most of them come here to study medicines, while the number of Chinese students in India is holding steady, state-run China Daily reported today.
In recent years, India has remained one of the top 10 sources of international students in China, according to the Chinese Ministry of Education.
Last year, 13,578 Indian students were studying in China, compared with only 765 a decade ago.
Eighty per cent of them were following undergraduate clinical medical courses in various medical institutions in China.
Officials say low tuition fee, good accommodations and classes taught in English resulted in about 8,000 Indian students coming to China.

Feku went to China to get investments but in reverse happening.People started investing in China like ICICI bank,Infosys,TCS opening new branches in china and now this. Indian people perception changed after feku went to China and Indian people started to think that china is far better than india. Feku has to start thinking that he is no more a CM or opposition party leader but PM of a country
Time for India to mobilize min 100,000 students from all across India to study in China…learn their language and build up strong relationship and network.

Many Indian students are going to China for studying medicine. Not sure whether that is due to better quality of education in China or unable to get medical seats in India. The government should intervene and get the capitation fee reduced. The current capitation fee charged by medical colleges in Chennai is Rupees 1.25 crores (200K USD).
